Arnold & Son HMS1

HMS1 AS1001
A strong return to tradition and classicism

The latest Arnold & Son timepiece is not only a tribute to John Arnold’s originality and skill but also to the town of La Chaux-de-Fonds itself, cradle of Swiss watchmaking and seat of the Company.

The newest additions to the HMS1 collection feature an anthracite, cream or black dial in a classical elegant 18-carat rose gold case, a white or anthracite dial in a stainless steel case, and an 18-carat white gold case featuring a silver colored dial. The case is 40 mm in diameter and houses a manufacture hand-wound movement which is only 2.7 mm thick.

Immediately one notices the two barrels providing 80 hours power reserve. Whereas most watches in this segment of the market only provide a single barrel, the solution of having two barrels provides more constant power and more constant force, which will result in improved accuracy, something important for Arnold & Son.

With further details such as hand angling and decoration of all bridges and fine hand stitching on the alligator leather strap, this HMS1 line is a true modern expression of the traditional search for precision combined with superior craftsmanship that Arnold & Son has always pursued.

The Arnold & Son HMS1 is water-resistant to 30 meters.
